Tree Sparrow

Tree Sparrows are smaller than House Sparrows, distinguished by a chestnut cap and white cheeks with a black patch. Otherwise they have a pale grey belly with brown and black wings and tail.

Like the House Sparrow they congregate in groups and are widespread but not common. Being communal birds they will nest in groups in trees, shrubs or use nest boxes.

In the garden they will feed on seed from a bird table. In the wild, they take insects as well as their staple shrub and cereal seeds.
